The concept of ‘layers’ in visual arts is well documented and in my opinion works perfectly well for ‘Street’ photography. Layers can give depth to an image and can sometimes be used to lead ones eye to the main focus of the image. The above image has three distinct layers. Layer 1. The foreground layer of the Brass Statue, 2. The middle layer of the young women walking and 3. The background layer of the buildings and signage that helps contextualise the other layers. Layers can really help to give a sense of perspective to ones images.
